An old curandera, a healer endowed with the spiritual power from her ancestors. Ultima is a wise, complex, mysterious character. Ultima’s power is often misunderstood and feared by the community. Many people refer to her as a bruja, or witch. Even Antonio is confused about the moral nature of Ultima’s power. Even Antonio couldn't figure out what was the meaning of her moral power, however no one really knows if she is a real witch. I just think that she is a woman who knows a lot about herb medicine and nature of living things.
